A man has been jailed after he assaulted a woman at a bus stop in South Shields.
On the morning of October 20 in 2015 a 20-year-old woman was waiting on her own for a bus on her way to work at a bus stop in Whiteleas Way when she was attacked by Alan Perez.
55-year-old Perez, who is formerly of Redwood Avenue, attacked the woman, who he did not know, causing her to suffer a head wound in an unprovoked incident.
He was found guilty of assault at Newcastle Crown Court in April and earlier this week was sentenced at Teeside Crown Court to 8 years - he will serve a minimum of five years.
Detective Inspector Dave Cole said: "Perez randomly attacked his victim causing her to suffer a head wound as she waited for a bus to work and we're pleased he will now spend a considerable amount of time in prison and that justice has been done."
